If you wanna have a taste of good brazilian music, check the link above shared from youtube. It is the video of a song called “Depois”, from Marisa Monte (brazilian singer born in Rio de Janeiro), played in one of the shows of her current tour, “Verdade uma ilusão – Tour” in Barcelona.
This song is one of my favourites among many others I enjoyed with my husband in Marisa’s show in Vivo Rio theatre, last friday night.
Marisa Monte is my favourite brazilian singer and I really consider her a diva. Her soft and charming voice and her nice behaviour on the stage seduces her audience as she sings and plays with her band what I consider good brazilian music.
She is a complete artist! She sings, composes, play instruments and works as a music producer as well. She just can’t be labeled as a one style singer only, she is a versatile artist.
Listening to her music alive in a romantic night with my husband was the best way to end the tough week I had and the best soundtrack possible for our date night (implementing item #5 of my bucket list).
Marisa’s work is a masterpiece of brazilian popular music and whoever is curious about brazilian contemporary music should check her work!
Learning some portuguese vocabulary:
Depois = after
Verdade uma ilusão = Truth, a illusion.
